Good for you. I am also losing at a slow pace, but that is better than gaining. Good luck, and don't ever give up!

Hi, My name is Esther and I am from St. Augustine, FL. I have been an Elvis fan since 1955 when I first heard him sing. He has been my favorite ever since! He is the greatest, and still the King!

Hi,
I'm Karen from Madison, Wisconsin. I am 57 yrs. old, married, and I have a daughter in college. I have three dogs... all ratties (rat terriers). I am so happy to join an Elvis Fans team! It's fun to share anything about Elvis! I was recently diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, and this alone was the "I must do something about my weight and life style now". After changing meds, my blood sugar is better, and I've lost a few pounds so far. I'm on my way to a better me. It's been quite depressing with this diagnosis, but now I have some Elvis friends that will help me and I am always there for you too!

Welcome, newbies!

I've been a fan of THE MAN since I was a teen (too long ago to even think about) lol
I belong to several teams and it takes a lot of time to visit them all. Maybe I should rethink the number of teams I try to be active on....

Have a great day, team.

Hmm well this could be tricky for me! Originally I am from Watertown, NY but currently live near Bangor, Maine after just having lived in Southern Vermont for six years. This is my first post in this group and I don't know why it has taken me so long. My parents were born in the early 1940s and I am the youngest of six kids. My mother was 40 when she had me and I grew up listening to Elvis, Jan & Dean, The Beach Boys, etc. All the favorites my parents loved. I am most influenced by their generation. I am 30 and still prefer the "golden oldies" as they refer to them now. I am in the process of legally changing my name and I was thinking of changing my maiden name to Presley. (Changing my name for some personal reasons.) I need to lose a lot more weight and I told my husband as a reward for reaching my goal I want him to take me to Graceland! Oh, man! How awesome would that be!! emoticon

I never did come here when I joined-sorry about that! I am Connie from west central Florida-have been here for 7 years coming from Ohio originally. Early retired and now devoted to SP fulltime! And to making my dream come true of being fit and thin! SP sure is helpful and have met so many wonderful people here! I hope we can get more people to join this team and liven up the ones who are no longer active here. Can't have SP shutting us down....not us true blue Elvis fans!!!! Have never been to Graceland, but would love to go one day. Have been an Elvis fan since I was a kid! Let's see - maybe 45 years! emoticon

Hi Team,

My name is Sharon and I am from Clarksville Arkansas. I visited Graceland back in the 80's. My 11 yr old son was in an Elvis Musical the life and time of Elvis when Robert was in 1st grade. The music teacher was a huge Elvis fan with a Elvis clock hanging in her class room. Robert said he loved to see the legs swing when the clock struck the hour. I have been a fan of Elvis since I was little. When I was in college my freshman year we could do a paper on any music icon. I picked Elvis. I received an A on the paper. My son asks when can I visit Graceland mom. I told next Spring. My husband wants to take my son to his first Major League Baseball game in St. Louis.

I look forward to getting to know everyone on the Elvis team.
Until then,
Sharon

Hi,

I'm new (introduced by Scootergirloz who recognised the Elvis and venue in my profile pic!) and currently in Vancouver, Canada. I'm originally English and first grew to love ETAs at a friend's parents' wedding anniversary - a family friend of theirs was an ETA.

I went to a few pizza restaurants in Streatham, London UK, that had Chinese ETAs (weird combination but it worked) and always had a great time.

I moved to Australia in 2000, stopping at Graceland on the way. I’ve been to the Parkes festival with my family and we had a great time, although it was incredibly hot one in 2010. I moved to (2005) and from (2007) and back to Canada (2010) from Australia. We just can’t sit still!

I took my family to Graceland last year. This year we are going to the Penticton, BC, Canada Elvis Festival in June.

My 4 year old daughter loves the Elvis song in the Wii Dance game best – Viva Las Vegas!

I'm a West Virginia hillbilly born and breed. Moved to Ohio as a baby - not my choice - but it is home how. I still visit WV often and even lived there from 1985 to 1995, but it never really felt like home.

I grew up listening to Elvis too and I just love him. My first trip to Graceland was a birthday gift from my 2 older sisters in November of 2009. I love it too - and them - Thanks Linda and Gail.

I joined SP in 2008 and about 6 teams, I think that was too many because I haven't been able to stick with any of my goals or lose any weight. So here I go again. Wish me luck.. emoticon

emoticon SCOOTERGIRLOZ for stepping in as a co-leader and saving the "Elvis" Team!!

Wishing I could participate in more of the post, but I'm also a leader of another team, which seems to be growing rapidly and Need all the time to keep it going.

But I will NEVER leave the 'ELVIS FANS" .....I'm living with an Elvis who loves to perform, and actually we are going out tonight at Hard Rock, where he will do his non-stop singing of Elvis songs and getting everyone there happy & wanting to take pics of him.

So ENJOY the songs, they will never end!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Update @ April 10, 2011 emoticon

Our revamped and funny 5 Elvis goals are now in operation. Click on the "Track Goal" to add one or all of them to your "Other Goals" page. This does not affect your existing position in your Fitness Minutes or SparkPoints. You can keep or remove the old goals from your "Other Goals" page as you wish. "The Wonder of You" goal was directly inspired by Bonny of BMCTRB who gave me a Spark goodie out of the blue, before I even thought about using SparkPeople seriously or seeking co-leadership.

Check out the new photos and feel free to post your own Elvis-related ones. Would love to see other fans post their own Elvis-related photos or video links.

We are seeking more co-leaders (preferably based in Memphis) so if you are interested, please SparkMail Scootergirloz. Our big dream is to have annual Elvis Fans Spark Meets or Graceland Get Togethers if someone local can help us organise it.

Looking forward to your ongoing input to help this team put a smile on people's Spark journeys. Would gratefully appreciate it if you could try your best to get others to join as the more the merrier!

All my best everyone,
Scootergirl in OZ

At April 5, 2011
Hello

From Sydney, Australia and I am thrilled at becoming a new co-leader of the Elvis Fan SparkTeam. Here is the April 5th announcement I made to the Elvis Fans members. So please watch this space for some very exciting changes...

Hello Elvis Fans emoticon ,

I hope you can spare the time to read this rather long message.

Our Elvis Fans SparkTeam was in danger of being automatically shutdown as it approaches 90 days of inactivity. To rescue it, I have requested co-leadership and have been granted access as of today. I have sparkmailed the two other co-leaders and according to Spark protocol, if they are unable to continue their role, we can seek a replacement co-leader. We wish our team to grow so that more than one leader can coach newbies and respond to questions.

emoticon
I love Elvis too much and applaud the Spark experience to let this team disappear. Though I am very new to SparkPeople, it has been working for a month to break my plateau after losing 20lbs/9kgs on my own (just before Xmas 2010). I am a Canadian living in Australia and have been participating in the annual Elvis Festival held every January in Parkes, NSW. It is such a crazy blast where over 15,000 tourists dressed as Elvis and Priscilla crowd into a small country town and generate $7million of tourism while celebrating The King.

You can play 2:25 minutes into this video to see my Elvis (in a Blue Jumpsuit) leading the parade with me (as Red Priscilla Showgirl) on the back of his motorcycle.2010 Parkes Elvis Festival - Pt 1 - posted by NCBlonde
www.youtube.com/watch?v=UO6w7tORXNA

If I still have your attention, I would like to know if anyone is opposed to replacing the existing goals with ones that are more Elvis inspired. The original goals duplicate those found in many other teams. Examples of Elvis replacement goals could be:

- Daily listen to your Elvis CD or song list during one dining session.
- Daily post the Elvis song that best represents your mood.
- Practice an Elvis dance move or karate pose during your exercise cool down. Spark goodie given for a posted photo of yourself doing so.
- Blog once a week how Elvis has inspired or impacted you in some way.
- Once a week, randomly give a Spark goodie to a Spark person you have never met (to honor the famous Elvis generosity and this encourages you log in enough to accumulate at least 5 points each week).
- Once a month, watch an entire Elvis movie without eating a single snack (okay, 3 cups of unsalted and unbuttered air-popped popcorn will be forgiven).
- Plus any of your suggestions as the Team is allowed to setup 5 goals. We can put them all up to a vote from current members.

Some extra challenges throughout the year could be:
- Get a Sparkgoodie for bringing another Spark person to our Elvis team.
- Bust out your best Elvis or Priscilla gear for photo competitions during special Elvis anniversaries.
- Hold a Spark Elvis Fans get-together or Graceland tour during the Elvis events in Memphis (soliciting a local Spark member to help with ground organization).
- Post an Elvis-related video of yourself in special competitions to win a week’s Free Accommodations in Sydney (at my house – ha ha – flights at own expense).
- Seriously if you can afford the flights, each year I can arrange the limited accommodations for a lucky couple during the 5-day Parkes Elvis Festival which is always the weekend nearest Elvis’s birthday. Keep copy this link into your browser for festival info of the 11-15 Jan 2012 event:

www.parkeselvisfestival.com.a
u/


These are just initial thoughts. I have already shortcut our team url to teams.sparkpeople.com/elvis

Our team will always be open to suggestions that help us spark more interest in Elvis or inspire you to live far healthier and longer life than Elvis sadly did. For those strong enough to read unplesant comments about the 10,000 calories a day that Elvis ate, please see this article:

www.abc.net.au/science/articl
es/2002/1
0/08/689019.htm

WARNING: article is very unflattering of Elvis himself and claim he is gone so proceed with copying into your browser with extreme caution.

emoticon Lets together to bring Elvis emoticon more into our Spark journey and thank-you, thank-you very much.

Hi Elvis Fans - I just joined today and began looking for folks who are Elvis fans like me. I live in north central Florida and wanted to connect with people who have similar interest. I have been to Graceland 4 times and Tupelo twice. I have lots of Elvis collectibles as well as music and movies. I hope to gain support as I work to lose weight.

I'm just north of Nashville. You'd think I'd get to Graceland often, wouldn't you? Not as often as I'd like though.

I am from South Jersey. I went to Graceland about 5years ago & I loved it. I hope to go back soon.

I started losing weight when I stopped stuffing my face and started facing my stuff. ???

Interesting (or not-so) information. EP (Love the man!) died on my first wedding anniversary - I met my husband at the door IN TEARS. emoticon That marriage died too, much later.

Like most My brother and I were raised on Elvis. Elvis is my favorite Entertainer for life. Elvis was just too cool. Elvis left so many songs for every emotion I've ever felt in my life. Who else can say they were voted in for three Hall of fames, and hit number 1 status twice on remixes after his death. Elvis was always like a family member. I was 9 going on ten when he died. My family was in deep mourning. My Mother bought every newspaper she could when he died. I love Elvis!! TCB

Just found this team.

I'm from Madison, TN, just north of Nashville. Though I've recently changed my profile picture, I used THE KING for awhile. We all know he has 'left the building' but I'll bring him back soon.

I've been on SP since December, 2008 and have reached my goal. Maintenance is my goal now.

I'm from Waukesha, WI, a large city that's just about 15 miles outside Milwaukee. I live with my girlfriend of 5 years, and our two cats. The two of us are both new to SparkPeople, but I'm glad I joined...up until now, I've found it so hard to be optimistic about reaching my goal of losing 100 pounds, but I think it's gonna be alot easier, discovering so many other like-minded people.


Have a great day.

Im from Miami....my DH just did a Prom last weekend, it was a "Vintage Vegas" theme and he went as Elvis. A lot of people stop and tell him this all the time. We both love all of his songs, and get to meet so many people who also share the love for him.

My Website has the pictures of our Prom Night, which was actually our first one ever to attend!

Hi,

I'm a retired school teacher from IN. We have visited AZ and FL in the winters. Bob and I have been in SP a year this week and love it. He is in the Colts team while I chose Elvis. In May we are going to see a play called, "All Shook Up!"

Let us give thanks this month and each day.

I know that. Did you know they hadn't done the lights for quite a few years now. My FIL was telling me all about them. I never got a chance to see them. As I did not get here till October 08.

When thinking of your weight loss and fitness motivation & weight loss goals, remove all fears by:

1.Focusing on the good
2.Focusing on the objective
3.Focusing on the goal
4.Focusing on the solution
5.Focusing on my aim
6.Focusing on the true destination

My name is Tiffany. I am new to this group. I am 34 years old going on 28 emoticon .I was raised on Elvis as a child. We starting taking our yearly trip to Memphis just after he died. I went to the candlelight services with my mom. I haven't been there since about 95. I sure do miss it. It was a lot of fun. I was born and raised in Kitchener, ON, Canada. I moved to California with my dog 4 years ago to marry my husband. I look forward to getting to know you all.

Hi Everybody, I was born in West Virginia and moved to Ohio as a child. After getting married in 1975 we moved back to West Virginia (my husband was born there too), in 1985, then back to Ohio in 1995. So I'm here to stay.
I'm a married 51 year old mother of 2 and grandmother of 5. I have been fat pretty much since I had my 2 kids. I put on weight while pregnant and never lost it. I've tried over and over again with little or no success.
I've been a member of SP since January but sadly lost interest a few weeks into it. I am BACK and trying once more. I LOVE ELVIS and was thrilled to find this team.

I am currently reading Dr. Phil's weight loss secrets and will make it work this time. According to Dr. Phil's you just have to make up your mind to do it and then DO IT. That is MY PLAN !!! emoticon
